The USPS Art Project is a mail art artist collaboration project created by Christina Massey, free and open for anyone who wants to participate. The goal is for unique collaborative artworks to be created, allowing the artists to establish deeper connections with others while practicing social distancing and in doing so, help the financially struggling USPS by sending and receiving packages. The finished artworks are shared online on the @uspsartproject social media accounts.
Hundreds of artists have joined in the project, ranging from sculpture to painting, drawing, mixed media, fiber art and more. The artists now have the opportunity to submit their collaborations for several exhibition opportunities, a hybrid traveling exhibition / theme exhibition with locations and dates secured at four venues thus far. This is a non-juried exhibition; artworks are accepted on a rolling submission basis until capacity is reached at each respective exhibition space. Artists who exceed a location’s capacity have the option to enter into the following location.
Please help support the shipping expenses of the project between venues and for return shipment of artworks by making a donation to the GoFundMe page. This helps to ensure no one gallery is over burdened by shipping expenses, and donations go right back into supporting the US Post Office by purchasing more services.
